Great lunch place!! We had a group of 10 so we tried just about everything they have on the menu and everyone was pleased with their choice!! There's a fun vibe here and the staff was awesome!!

Good food but they are unfortunately cash only. Hot sauce is VERY hot. A little goes a long way. Fun to sit outside and watch the cars go by.

We loved the veggie burrito here. As vegetarians, sometimes we have a challenge finding food. However, this place was great! Highly recommend.

I had the fish burrito and my sister had the fish tacos. The portions were very generous. It was very delicious! I would eat there again!

Had the fish tacos! Yum, generous helping . The server was very genuine and the food came fast. And my husband got a Tshirt to bring back to the main land.

Each time we return to the area, the first stop we make is Tropical Taco! We love the fish tacos (baja style) and fresh tortilla chips. They do not disappoint!

After lots of sushi and poke (and too expensive meals) went looking for a change of pace and found this great taco place. The fish taco special plate is amazing. We even went back again the next day for a snack.

Great quick meal as we were heading back from our 4 mile hike. Tacos were delicious but the special hot sauce kicked it up a notch for us.

This is a lovely gem of a restaurant that served the freshest-tasting fish tacos I had the entire week on Kauai. Great prices for the quality of food!

Friendly service, fish tacos were good. I have a hard time justifying paying $40 for lunch though. We did get full. Drink refills are available for $1. Slow island service.
